The Apostle Peter's second letter in the New Testament is a prophetic message to us today. We learn about end-times deceivers, the role of demons, and the destructions that are already beginning to come to pass. Even the recent government UFO report is relevant! Hear what Pastor Joe's godly grandmother told him about UFOs almost 50 years ago!
The Christian walk is not just about subtracting (stop doing this, stop doing that), but it is about ADDING and MULTIPLYING. Peter the Apostle writes that if we add certain things, we will become fruitful and productive (multiplication). Two of those things, virtue and knowledge, are looked at here. If we ignore the latter, it is to our peril.
Many people see Christian faith as something full of subtraction. Stop doing this. Stop doing that. The Apostle Peter tells us to ADD to our faith. When we are diligent to add certain things to our faith, it will result in acceleration in our walk with God and in gaining prosperity in life.
God's design for spiritual vitality involved the assembling of his people for appointed times. King Hezekiah of Judah brought a revival to Israel by calling the people to commemorate Passover for the first time in a long time. In this story, we see a pattern on how to call people to gather, and what do once they're gathered. The goal: widespread awakening!
A lukewarm spirit is covering much of the church world and many believers today. As a result, America as we know it will not survive. BUT it will be revived! It is time to awaken because a third Great Awakening is coming to America. Hear Pastor Joe share a personal story of awakening plus prophetic words from two Christian leaders concerning what is about to take place.
We live in dangerous times. Many people are being deceived by false prophets. This was predicted by Jesus. He said wolves would come in sheep's clothing. How do we spot a wolf? The best way is to know what a good shepherd looks like. The apostle Peter shows us what a good shepherd looks like and tells us to watch out for predators.
Are you longing for judgment to come against wickedness? Just know that judgment always begin in the house of God. That judgment is already taking place in the church in America. Why? Is there a way out? The apostle Peter gives us the answers
Nearly 60 years ago, a group of students, seeking to bring about justice in the world. composed a document that has quietly impacted influencers over the years. Today, we are seeing its full manifestation coming to pass as America takes a hard turn to the political left. It is The Port Huron Statement. Many of its goals were noble. But without Jesus Christ at the center, all justice movements will inevitably lead to great injustice. God wants a Port Huron REstatement. Not so much a document, but a year of prayer, worship, and proclamation, with Jesus at the center, leading to a new justice movement with a new generation of his disciples powering it.
